For weeks, rumors have been swirling that Madonna would be gracing Louis Vuitton’s new ad campaign. The French fashion house has remained mum — until now. Her Madgesty will indeed appear in the Spring/Summer ’09 ad campaign that will hit magazines in February 2009. The star is shot by legendary photographer Steven Meisel (who infamously collaborated with Madonna on her Sex book) in a sultry French cafe setting. When it came to choosing the new face, designer Marc Jacobs wouldn’t have it any other way. “I wanted the campaign to be very bold, very sensual and very atmospheric. To carry off all these references and all its sophistication, we needed the ultimate performer — and for me, that is Madonna,” says Jacobs. We couldn’t agree more. Tell us: What do you think of Madonna’s Louis Vuitton ads? Do you think she was the best choice?

Alright Lisa, just because you supposedly “know” this person doesn’t mean you have the right to belittle the opinion of other people. Because in my opinion she might not be old but her music does suck and I happen to have some pretty good taste in music.

she looks great for her age.
she’s a distinguished artist.
she’s an amazing performer.
but she is hardly what i would call “classy and sophisticated” — something, i believe, LV should’ve considered before making her their model.
but they’re riding the popularity wave she herself has started (and even her divorce is benefiting her, although, that, too is being done in poor taste, which is not entirely uncharacteristic of Madge) — and they definitely do not care what any one of us thinks on the matter.

Madonna is NOT interesting, talented, or attractive. She IS egomaniacal, overpaid, and uninspiring. I wish she would just step aside already.

madonna is just icon.
1.her energy is unbelievable
2.everybody lookin like this at the age of 50 must be just glad and confident
3.her hard work and discipline take her to the highest heights
4. she seems to be a great mom

and btw….i like that ad,everything about that just describes advertised product. no one tells you must be beautiful to be in the commercial or ad but present thing as well as you can

For all of you saying hateful things-Let’s see what you look like when you are 50!!!

I think it is a matter of taste. I am not a huge Madonna fan and personally don’t think she is the right look for them. I think someone classy looking would have been better.

Please, for god’s sake, get out of the mesh tights, put some clothes on and go home. Complete and total has been. Ugh. So boring. So ordinary.

She is the perfect choice for any campaign. I would rather see her be the face of LV than the current wanna be tarts that grace the gossip magazines. LV is a classic staple to our society and i think the same can be sad about Madonna. Her accomplishments and charity work cannot be riveled by anyone in the media.

I’m so glad to read that I’m not the only one who finds her totally unattractive.

She looks great! LV made a good choice.
